Musculoskeletal radiologists specialize in providing diagnostic services for bones, joints, and associated soft tissues. The musculoskeletal imaging specialty, also called MSK, usually handles cases involving sports imaging, evaluation of disease processes in bones and connective tissues, and trauma. MSK radiologists most often use imaging to evaluate patients for tears, strains, fractures, masses, unexplained pain or other symptoms in the extremities, joints, bones, and soft tissues. The MSK radiologists at SimonMed specialize in reading imaging for professional baseball, football, and hockey teams across the country.
